Carol Vorderman, the television presenter, has revealed she is "covered in burns" after falling off a treadmill while running naked.
The former Countdown number-cruncher disclosed she tripped while using the machine and ended up trapped up against a wall.
It's hilarious.Pain? I fell off a treadmill running naked (don't ask).Now covered in burns and doctor's dressings! https://t.co/AGNLsMcoQN— Carol Vorderman MBE (@carolvorders) August 26, 2015
Vorderman, 54, was intending to comfort a Twitter friend over a mishap with predictive text messaging.
But she managed to trump the tale with her own story - revealing her naked exercise mishap to her more than 330,000 followers:

After leaving many of her Twitter followers baffled, Vorderman took to social media again on Thursday morning as she sought to further explain what happened:
And she revealed she was having to return to the doctor, concluding she did not think "running is for me somehow":
Have twisted knee and back to doc today... Grrrrrr. I don't think running is for me somehow! Have a great day x— Carol Vorderman MBE (@carolvorders) August 27, 2015
Last week, Vorderman was among the celebrities who attended the funeral of Cilla Black in Liverpool.
Understandably, Vorderman's revelations left just one question in the minds of many of her followers:
@carolvorders I nearly choked on my cuppa ,when I read this, one curiosity question Treadmill in the buff WHY.— Paul Collins (@M0BSW) August 26, 2015
In 2013, she went onto BBC Radio 2 to deny accusations that she had faked an accident to disguise a "secret nose job".
